Mycoplasma contamination is one of the most challenging problems of daily cell culture since commonly used antibiotics in cell culture are not effective against mycoplasma contamination. Mycoplasma can damage precious cell lines by inducing chromosomal aberrations, changes in cell morphology, and cell growth. For this reason, we offer abm’s PCR-based assay for mycoplasma contamination detection (PCR Mycoplasma Detection Kit – SKU# ABM-G238) and abm’s Mycoplasma Elimination Cocktail.
The Mycoplasma Elimination Cocktail by abm is more potent than similar products on the market, eliminating over 50 different species of mycoplasma contamination with only 4 treatments. In addition, no toxicity was shown in any cell line undergoing mycoplasma elimination treatment using the Mycoplasma Elimination Cocktail.
- Direct addition of cocktail to cell culture medium
- No change to routine cell culture methods needed
- Effectively eliminates over 50 types of mycoplasma species
- Broad range
- Not cytotoxic to most mammalian cell lines
